We visited this winery on what seemed like a rather slow day. Despite this, they rushed us through the sampling (which were sincerely the smallest amount I've ever experienced) and did not apply our sampling fee towards our purchase. I don't know if this is not the policy, but I've read many reviews that stated such was done for them,... More

Though the buildings and grounds were beautiful, we found the winery did not compare to many others we have visited across the country. The tasting was meager and felt rushed. The staff was not as welcoming as we have found elsewhere.

My sisters, mother, and nieces visited this winery on our way to Winchester Virginia for my daughter's college graduation. Since visited every winery in Virginia is on my daughters bucket list, and Winchester is surrounded by wineries we were excited to stop here because we had never been. The young man that waited on us was excellent. He laughed with... More

We go to Ashland, VA often to visit our son and his family and finally decided to visit the winery. We found some very good wines. It is in a beautiful setting of gardens and old large trees. We will definitely be going back.

We stopped by while we were in Glenn Allen. The staff of this tiny winery are very friendly. I enjoyed the wine tasting and decided to take home a bottle of Chambourcin. The only complaint that I have is that the wine glasses do not come as souvenirs with the wine tasting. I'm not sure if they're available for purchase,... More

I went to the vineyard with a couple of gal pals, and we were pleasantly surprised a festival was going on. Well organized, good food truck food and the facility was beautiful. The wines were great as well.

This is a great little winery. The staff is wonderful and wines are very good. I have never been treated better. After tasting be sure to stay around and enjoy a glass of wine in one of the outside or inside patio areas. The place is a very pleasant place to seat side as a couple and to enjoy a... More

Although this is one of the closest wineries, James River Cellars is a small, quaint winery. There is not a lot to offer once inside. It has a very small "gift shop". The staff, however, are very polite and friendly. Since it is located off a main highway, you dont get much of a view. But please indulge in the... More
